End this visa nonsense, Bağış tells EU
AA PhotoTurkish European Union Minister Egemen Bağış sent a clear message to the union yesterday, telling them to "end the nonsense" on visa requirements for Turkey, private broadcaster NTV reported on its website.
Bağış spoke at the Turkey-EU Parliamentary Commission meeting in Istanbul, saying it was unacceptable for Turkish people to be put through visa regulations when European Union nationals do not need visas to visit member states.
"Turkey's position in the world today clearly does not deserve these visa applications," Bağış said. "I ask you to send strong messages to the European Parliament to end this."
